Course Overview


The problem

Economic struggles nationally and personally. Feelings of being lost and unable to make decisions. Declining mental and emotional health. Not to mention fears around the climate, international politics and the future overall! The more we become connected globally, the more complex navigating our way through life seems to become. A daunting prospect!

THE SOLUTION

Take responsibility for yourself – no one is going to do it for you, but you! However, it may not be easy to know how, which is why we’re here. Over 8 weeks you will gain the skills and confidence to make better decisions about your life and career direction, developing soft and hard skills that are desired by employers and be supported to find sustainable employment.

WHY US

We are a highly skilled, educated and informed team of professionals, with many years of experience across a broad range of sector, roles and industries (see Our Team). But more than our background – our purpose is to create capable and resilient individuals, who will contribute to the continuation of a capable and resilient nation – strengthening the chain.

MODULE 1 – GETTING SET UP AND UNDERSTANDING THE BASICS OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

Here we help you to set up the course technology and create the context for your learning. We’ll aim to empower you with knowledge of our personal development framework, for you to use inside and outside of the course. Essentially, you need to recognise that your mental needs – feeling challenge and learning new things – are accessed by having strong emotional foundations – developed through building relationships and self-expression. But both of these levels depend on strong physical foundations – financial stable, secure accommodations, good health and a routine.

MODULE 2 – MONEY MANAGEMENT: REDUCE STRESS BY MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR MONEY AND PLANNING FOR YOUR FUTURE

Without knowing what you have now, you cannot make good decisions for the future. We help you to get clear about the exact black and white situation of right now, so you’re empowered to move forward effectively. Highly transferable to any role that involves management of money, a budget etc.

MODULE 3 – SPACE MANAGEMENT: IMPROVE YOUR FOCUS BY GETTING RID OF DISTRACTIONS AND CLUTTER

Your environment always wins. What you surround yourself with has an impact on your mental and emotional states. It is critical that you get things in order and create a system to keep it so. Relevant to home and at your desk – making you a more reliable and stable contributor to any team. We’ll show you how.

MODULE 4 – TIME MANAGEMENT: PREPARE TO JOIN THE 21ST CENTURY "KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY" BY LEARNING PERSONAL EFFECTIVENESS SKILLS

The measure of effectiveness at work used to be how much “stuff” you moved around and how quickly you moved it. But with jobs becoming increasingly knowledge-based, a new way is needed. That way is how you use your most precious resource – time. If you know how to schedule and plan effectively, you will be ahead of many other candidates.
